Encourage Granny Flats

Allow and Incentivize Accessory Dwelling Units

SHOULD SINGLE-FAMILY ZONING be allowed at all? It is clearly an inefficient use of land and infrastructure, as well as the principal form of exclusionary zoning in America. Nothing works quite so well as minimum house and yard sizes when it comes to keeping those people out. So why is it legal? The answer is that, for many, the neighborhood of freestanding houses remains the American Dream, and there are few jurisdictions in the United States that are likely to rob people of it.
